Half term is on the horizon and, whether you’re jetting off somewhere sunny or staying at home, we’ve got the perfect prize to get the school holidays off to a flying start…
Bespoke. Designer. One-off. They’re the kind of adjectives you’d expect to find in a celebrity-studded feature about London Fashion Week. So why on earth am I using them in a post about a ride-on suitcase made for kids?
Because, thanks to Trunki’s ‘made by me’ customiser, you can now create a Trunki that’s totally unique. Or rather, the budding designer in your house can.
Head to the Trunki Imagination Station and you’re given a blank canvas (AKA an all-white Trunki). You can then choose from 10 colours for each of the nine components of your case, and go as psychedelic or colour-coordinated as you like. Either way, your kids will never mistake their bags for someone else’s at the airport again.
My three-year-old tested the design process out and it really is as easy as it sounds. He chose everything from the bright red body to the yellow carry handle, clicked ‘buy now’ and – hey presto – his handiwork arrived on our doorstep a few days later, ready to be taken for a spin at the nearest park.
We packed it with as many teddies – I mean essentials – as we could, and even then it felt light and easy to carry. That said, the case’s reinforced exterior means it’s sturdy enough to withstand an excitable toddler bouncing around on top of it (and if not, there’s always the free five-year guarantee).
At £39.99, it’s a great investment if you’ve got young kids, as it’ll last through plenty of family holidays. Plus, it’d make an affordable Christmas gift that’s bound to bag you a few brownie points for originality.
